There are many ways to meditate or just be still. Everyone who stops even for a few moments, or minutes, begins to feel the sensation of slowing down, letting themselves come to stillness. It is a relief, a step away from the constant activity of our lives, and it is often described as blissful. It helps you connect with yourself, and with others.
A simple method: The simplest way to be involved in Just this day is to Just Be Still. You can do this wherever you are:
Take a moment to be comfortable.
Gently rest your eyes, keeping them either open or closed.
Withdraw your attention from all sights and sounds.
Stay there, just resting, listening and allowing the body and mind to remain still.
Don’t be afraid to stay in that quiet space for as long as it is easy to do so.
Acknowledge and appreciate the positive feelings and thoughts which may spring directly from this exercise.
Then when you resume your activities, remember the stillness and connect with it whenever you can.
First try stillness for yourself and then spread the word so that we can all join together in a united stillness on Just this day.
